It seems crazy to me that “Owners” isn’t one of the optional Roles in Protected Environments. It seems like that would be the actual most important value to have there. I see very few tasks in the issue tracker on the topic, and none are open.
There must be a way to actually protect an environment to a limited group of users without having to click on individual names for each environment. With “Maintainers” being the highest level, I have no way to say, you can merge but you can’t deploy production. That is, without hours of work clicking individuals or scripting against the API.
Is this a design decision or just an oversight? Or perhaps I’m just not seeing the obvious way to do this?
